Now let’s meet Winnie, and if that makes you think of a certain Pooh bear, known to be a steadfastly loyal friend, well we’re fine with that. And Pooh was known to have "a little something" around 11:00 in the morning. As the clock in his house "stopped at five minutes to eleven some weeks ago," any time can be snacking time. This might be our girl Winnie’s inclination as well, as she came in a bit overweight.
However, our Winnie’s story is a tad more Eeyore. She was by all apparent indications a sorely neglected pup, arriving forlorn, dirty, terribly matted, and suffering from dental disease. But Winnie has been quickly transformed in rescue and is clearly returning the devotion.
Freshly groomed, she’s a beautiful Blenheim with exquisite caramel swaths, adoring brown eyes, and a tail that now never stops wagging. Her foster Mom reports that when she must leave the house, Winnie is always right at the door upon return with nothing out of place. Loyalty indeed!
While Winnie is as loving and sweet as can be, and always by your side, she still is a little shy with new folks at first and startled at quick moves. Trust takes some time while this precious gal acclimates to her wonderful new world.
Winnie sleeps in a blanket-adorned bottom of a nightstand, seeming to be a nod to life in a crate. She uses those gorgeous goo-goo eyes to solicit treats but easily accepts that one isn’t coming right now. After all, she now knows the love she’s getting and, really, that’s all she wants. And she’s ready to give it back, like fur-ever.
